What is A Community Fridge?

  • Help to reduce social isolation and provide a welcoming space for all
  • Increase access to nutritious food such as fresh fruit and vegetables
  • Increase access to food and growing skills and circular economy initiatives

What Funding is Available and How Do I Apply?

Free support and funding to start a Community Fridge!

Are you a Community Group or not-for-profit interested in reducing food waste?

In partnership with Co-op, Environmental Charity Hubbub is looking to support 100 community organisations across the UK to establish a new Community Fridge. Community fridges are registered places where surplus food is shared within a local community – by businesses and individuals. They are welcoming, social spaces that are open to all.

Until the 20th Sept we’re offering groups £4,000 funding to cover start-up and running costs, plus free membership of the Community Fridge Network, along with full support, information and guidance on how to get your project started.
